Product Brief

802.11abgn+ac, 2x2, Dual Band Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0, NGFF

"PB # G83453-001", "WP2 NGFF PCIe B1 E5", and addl. PCB text (date code
4712, Nov. 2012) is silkscreened on the back of the module in the FCC photos.

FCC ID PD97260NGU (approval 04/22/2013) is presumably for the 7260NGW model

(7260NGWU?) for vendors using BIOS lockdown of wireless module.

FCC ID PD97260NG (approval 04/17/2013) is presumably the standard 7260HMW model.

There is an 00:15:00 OUI on the label pictured on the device in the FCC label shots.

Per the photos @ the Sony SVF13NA1EL 's FCC filing, it's using W308AK1L.
The antenna connectors used are MHF4.

Devices likely using this module[edit]

  • A Class II permissive change made 07/02/2013 states that the module
was approved for use in the Samsung Armor3-13T tablet PC
(using Skycross B130110 and B130111 antennas).
The label shot shows a device with a model NP940X3G (940X), which
appears to be the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus (on Ultrabook News).
  • Another C2PC made 10/21/2013 notes the Dell T07G is covered
(and using Acon antennas APP6P700913 + APP6P700914)
